Machine kills two workers

Staff reports

BELLE ROSE – Two men were killed Tuesday when a skid loader fell on them, Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said.

The sheriff said Stephen Callaway, 60, of Donner; and Harold Andras III, 18, of Thibodaux, tilted the Bobcat back to try to fix a broken part when it fell forward and crushed them.

The accident happened at a private residence in Belle Rose, which is located along Bayou Lafourche south of Donaldsonville.

Both Callaway and Andras were employed by Tree Boss, a tree-cutting company.

Autopsies were ordered for both, though the sheriff does not suspect any criminal activity.
